Give me an original S14 any day over an S55. An abomination.

Says the guy running an N54?

The S55 is the best motor BMW made in a long long time, exhaust Note be damned. The throttle response and cooling are amazing.

S14 is slow and... quaint.

Say wha? LOL. Yeah I have an N54 and it's fantastic and my car *came from the factory* like that —-but I didn't stuff it inside an E30 M3 and ruin it.

To call the S14 "slow and quaint" shows you don't understand anything about the E30 M3 or that engine. The S14 was a very special engine...derived straight out of racing and with one of the best 4-cylinder sounds you'll ever hear. There's a time to appreciate pedigree...and period correctness.

I mean...you're definitely invited to restore and modify an E30 to your exact specifications. No need to worry about each of the other E30s that were never going to be yours.

I'm somewhat against this, not because the engine is bad (it is not), but is the chassis also properly upgraded for this engine, is this the car front heavy, etc.? If I was to do this I would try to find a lightweight high rev small N/A engine instead

Since I have owned a 1990 M3, I would much rather have the S14 and modify that engine. The sound was incredible with that car (in stock form).

Cool car. Always nice to see folks trying new combos. I still think the S54 is the best swap for the E30 though.

Such a travesty.

"Hey, guys! Let's just take an engine from BMW's deadest era and just slap it into something from it's best era of all time. It's sure to be a win."
